Drosera capensis 'Bainskloof', Cape Sundew, live carnivorous plant, potted

$15.00

Drosera capensis 'Bainskloof' is an easy to grow carnivorous plant. Bainskloof refers to the region in South Africa where it was originally collected (Bainskloof Pass). It grows more compact and erect than other varieties of capensis making it an ideal candidate for smaller grow areas.  The leaves can grow quite red as it ages. It will also produce an impressive flower spike filled with large purple flowers.

Plants are currently in a 3.5" pot and will be shipped potted.

Drosera Care: Sundews do best in part shade to bright sunlight. They are well suited for growing on window ledges. They must be watered with non-chlorinated water preferably with a low TDS (between 0 and 25ppm). You can use rain water or distilled. Allow to dry slightly but not completely in between waterings. When watering, place plants in a tray and pour water in tray about 1/2” (referred to as the tray method). Avoid watering the crown of the plant. Temperature should be maintained between 60°F and 80°F. Humidity isn't terribly important. Sundews generally tolerate typical household humidities. If your Drosera has little to no dew, increase light. They generally do well in a terrarium.
